Desert Vista High School students recently launched a website that discusses the positives of public education.

Deriving from an honors junior English class, the website, called The Thunder Project, is run entirely by students.

With a goal to make their work accessible to the community, the website features posts from more than 70 students at Desert Vista.

The site’s blog-style posts about public education circle around 12 different areas of focus including testing, technology, fine arts, special education, and religion.
